Abstract:

THE PROPOSED EFFORT WILL DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF USING THE PIEZOELECTRIC POLYMER POLYVINYLIDENE FLUORIDE (PVF[2]) AS A LOW OVERPRESSURE (1-30PSI) TIME-OF-ARRIVAL (TOA) TRANSDUCER. A SERIES OF SHOCK TUBE CALIBRATION EXPERIMENTS WILL BE PERFORMED ON EXISTING PVF(2) STRESS GAUGES. TWO DIFFERENT PROTOTYPE TOA GAUGE CONFIGURATIONS WILL BE DEVELOPED. CIRCUITRY FOR INTEGRATION OF PVF(2) TRANSDUCERS TO EXISTING AFWL/CERF DATA ACQUISITION SYSTEMS WILL BE DESIGNED. A CONCEPT DEMONSTRATION WILL BE PERFORMED AS AN ADD-ON EXPERIMENT TO A SCHEDULED FIELD TEST. OPTIONS FOR LOW-COST PVF(2) TOA MATERIALS WILL BE EVALUATED.
